A - Pouring from the bottle you get about a 1/2 finger of fizzy head that disappears within seconds of finishing the pour. It leaves no lacing whatsoever. The beer is golden and clear with lots of carbonation bubbles going towards the top. Doesn't look promising.
S - Can't get much from the aroma at all, maybe some corn and grain.
M - The mouthfeel is interesting, it almost has a syrupy feel to it with moderate carbonation.
T - Very bland taste, very similar to every light beer you've ever tried. Somewhere in the middle there is a subtle sweet malt but it is overwhelmed by the watery taste.
I don't recall what the price is for a case of this, but I am sure you can get something better for the money you would spend on this. It goes down easy but with no flavor, so if that's what you are looking for this is your beer.

Modelo Especial brewed by Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V. with an ABV of 4.4% This brew pours out a dark amber color with a white head. Modelo is a filtered brew you can see right though it. The smell is rich with grans and some bitterness. This for the most part looks and smells like an American Lager. The taste is bold but light. I'm not picking up on the bitterness of this brew. You pick up on some grains but not much. Modelo Especial has a smooth clean finish to it. Almost like a light american style beer. There is not much else to say. this is a good drinkable beer. Mouthfeel is clean and refreshing. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out of 5. This beer is better in a can. I would get this brew again.
